Praised by his mentor Herbie Hancock as “a musical painter,” Lionel Loueke combines harmonic complexity, soaring melody, a deep knowledge of African folk forms, and conventional and extended guitar techniques to create a warm and evocative sound of his own. Lionel Loueke brings jazz into vibrant contact with the sounds of West Africa, in particular his native Benin.

«I have two heritages,» Loueke says. «One is from my ancestors from Africa, and that goes through my music, my body, my soul, every aspect of what I do. But also I have the heritage from the Occident, from the West, from Europe and the U.S. I speak English, I speak French, and I have that heritage too. I called this album Heritage because I've been blessed by all different parts of the world, and most of the songs reflect that.»

Loueke's trio includes Massimo Biolcati on bass and Ferenc Nemeth on drums.
